What we chose to do
A friend told me how much fun she had on a dolphin cruise a few days before, and I asked her for the information about it.
I booked the cruise the day before our trip.
Although we live only an hour and a half from the beach and go there fairly often, my grandkids had never seen dolphins. I knew they would love it!
We only live an hour and a half away, so we drove there for the day.
Everyone was super nice. The captain met us at the top of the ramp and carried my small cooler. His mate took my beach bag, and I thought they were both very sweet.
While we were waiting for others to board the boat, the captain walked around with his large bird and encouraged the kids to pet it. The boat was very spacious and clean, and we had plenty of room to spread out. The captain was very knowledgeable about some of the beautiful yachts that we passed and he was very entertaining. He told us that the dolphins loved to be called up to the boat and called them by name. My youngest granddaughter actually thought that the dolphins came because she had called them. We had a wonderful time and plan to do it again.
My grandkids and I had a wonderful time. The scenery was beautiful and I enjoyed seeing the dolphins. I also enjoyed watching people jet ski and seeing the yachts. I would recommend this activity to kids of all ages.
